Christian Education & Formation
It’s not just Sunday School anymore!

Adult Sunday School
The adult Sunday school meets at 9:15 a.m. each Sunday.  We read the lectionary readings of that Sunday and discuss them.  The interaction is very stimulating and all adults are welcome.  When something intense happens during the week in the news, we discuss this and how we as a Christian community can respond to these tragedies.  We have discussed the Episcopal book put out by Chris Yaw, Jesus was an Episcopalian and will continue with other book studies in mid-August or beginning of September. 

Grab the iPad, pour a cup and head for your favorite chair. We hope you are enjoying the St. Alban's Daily!
